Lakeland Industries, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of protective clothing for industry, healthcare and first responders on the federal, state and local levels, has extended its strategic investment in Inova Design Solutions Ltd.

The additional investment will enable Bodytrak to increase manufacturing momentum and operations and continue to position itself at the forefront of the Connected Worker Market.

Bodytrak captures real-time physiological data from unique in-ear sensors and analyses this data using AI and uses cloud services to provide critical insights that protect workers from incidents caused by heat stress and fatigue.
